2,000+ Gather for World Congress of Families in Madrid

 

Our President Brian Brown is in Spain speaking at this event!

The World Congress of Families (WCF) will convene Friday through Sunday in Madrid to discuss the importance of traditional marriage to society, just days after President Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriage.
... The conference, which gathers a network of pro-family organizations, scholars and leaders from more than 60 nations, last met in 2009.

This year’s theme is “Marriage and Family, Future of Society.”

The goal is to demonstrate that marriage between one man and one woman is essential to future family and societal prosperity.

Same-sex marriage was created in Spain in 2005 by former Prime Minister Jose Zapatero.

“What is a wonderful about WCF is that we are going to have people from diverse religious backgrounds,” Mantilla said. “Everyone is united on the fact that we need to promote what we know is true and what people around the world know is true.” -- CitizenLink
